Marcus Christian Correspondence
This online exhibit showcases some of the personal letters of Marcus Bruce Christian, who authored "I Am New Orleans and Other Poems", and worked with the Louisiana Negro Writers Project, a program of the Work Projects Administration. During this time he compiled the unpublished manuscript, "The History of the Negro in Louisiana", which can be viewed in our archives. A transcript is available in the Louisiana Digital Library. Correspondence included in this exhibit is mainly between Marcus Christian, Langston Hughes, and Arna Bontemps.
